Kohl's is updating our Purchase Order documents to include the packing instruction and parent and factory codes and names.
By communicating this information electronically to our trading partners, we hope to provide better clarification to our vendors on how Kohl's expects cartons to be packed and visibility to what parent and factory are responsible for producing private brand and exclusive goods. Effective July 21, 2010 all trading partners must be able to accommodate the new packing instructions as well as the parent and factory codes on both the 850 and the 860 documents. Please refer to the 850 Purchase Order and 860 Purchase Order Change maps for details on these segments. These updated maps as well as a detailed letter are available on www.connection.kohls.com. If you have any questions or concerns regarding these changes contact firstname.lastname@example.org with 850 and 860 Changes in the subject field. Vendors are required to ensure their internal applications and databases are equipped to handle these changes without any interruptions in service as of July 21, 2010.
